At our core, we believe in giving back. It’s who we are as an organization, as a team and as individuals. This year, we are grateful for several opportunities to make a difference in the lives of so many. As part of our mission, Regenrus sets aside 4% of product sales for our Regenrus Cares Foundation. The impact you make by purchasing our products ranges from feeding those who are food insecure to positively effecting the environment to providing education and resources for those is challenging regions of the world.
Let’s take a look at the positive impact made through Regenrus Cares:
In keeping with the overall need of our country while still in a pandemic, we chose Feeding America as our January non-profit. The recent pandemic most impacted families that were already facing hunger, and households with children are more likely to experience food insecurity. In response to COVID-19, Feeding America distributed nearly 5.2 billion meals to 200-member food banks. We felt it important to support Feeding America in their efforts as the impact of the pandemic is still being realized by so many.
In February, Regenrus Cares chose to support Uganda Generation Hope. This organization is near and dear to our heart, and we are happy to support the children in Uganda through this amazing organization. Uganda Generation Hope provides safe housing, education and resources to children who would otherwise have nothing and live a high-risk life on the streets.
Dress for Success was our choice for March, Women's History Month. As a women-owned business, we are passionate about doing all we can to empower all women. Their mission says it all – Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
Preserving the environment is critical for our future generations as well as our ability to continue to provide excellent, organic ingredients for our products. In April, we chose Earthday.org to receive our gift. Did you know the first Earth Day was held 50 years ago? This organization started a revolution around the environment and are igniting an education revolution to save the planet. Through their volunteer corps, this organization improves literacy around climate and the environment, coordinates a citizen science campaign through their Global Earth Challenge, and works tirelessly on conservation and biodiversity so protect both wildlife and humanity. They have multiple programs that allow you to focus on what makes sense for you, your family and your future.
HeartMath was our choice for May. For more than 25 years, HeartMath Institute has been researching the heart-brain connection and learning how the heart influences our perceptions, emotions, intuition and health. People who have participated in the training and technology provided see a significant improvement in focus, sleep and calmness while lowering anxiety, fatigue and depression. With so many struggling from depression and mental health issues, particularly after such a difficult year as 2020, we believe in investing time in ourselves and others to improve our lives. The mission of HeartMath is To Help Activate the Heart of Humanity. Well said!
Finally, for June we went back to Uganda Generation of Hope. Our children are our future, so to positively impact the lives of the children in this Ugandan area gives us so much joy. These children are often HIV positive and lack proper access to healthcare. Regenrus Cares provides the Hope Blend to supplement the kids food helping them thrive. The Uganda Generation of Hope provides not only the basic needs, education and medication for these children, but a place of hope, of belonging. We are so proud of the work they do.
Regenrus Cares selects our charities through our Regenrus nominating committee and reviews each one against Charity Navigator for a score of at least 90%. In addition to proudly donating 4% of all sales to these causes, we also give back through our sourcing strategy and create impact within our own community through volunteerism and donations. We believe in doing good, and look forward to continuing to support more charities in 2021 through Regenrus Cares.
In addition, we have two other give back programs that we support through Regenrus Cares. First the “Ohana Love” program where we gift our products to those who cannot afford them or need more than the standard recommended servings. We also provide discounts to those who have unique and special circumstances where they cannot pay full price for the products and need just a little assistance. Since January 2018 we have provided almost $5,000 in FREE products to those in need.
In sourcing our ingredients, we also provide a give back!
Purchasing our RegenAloe™ ingredient we partner with Mannarelief Ministries who feed the Hope Blend to malnourished orphans around the world. To date, Mannarelief has provided more than 105 million servings to over 13.3M orphans in 89 countries. We also adopted & fed orphans from Esperanza Viva in Puebla Mexico. In sourcing, Helichrysum from a family owned business in Croatia three inspiring sisters employ 1000 migrant workers twice a year to harvest Helichrysum and it is the only source of income to feed their families and provide basic necessities for their villages.
